Po­lice say woman lied about baby death

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - NATIONAL -

CINCIN­NATI — A woman who claimed to have lost her baby dur­ing a deadly shoot­ing at a gen­der re­veal party wasn’t preg­nant, po­lice said Mon­day.

Col­erain Township Po­lice Chief Mark Den­ney said in­ves­ti­ga­tors don’t know why the woman had claimed to be preg­nant. She told Ohio news or­ga­ni­za­tions she lost her un­born child af­ter she was wounded in the leg. Po­lice said their in­ves­ti­ga­tion is be­ing im­peded by “leads known to be lies” that are wast­ing time.

A 22-year-old In­di­ana woman, Au­tum Gar­rett, was killed and eight peo­ple, in­clud­ing three chil­dren, were wounded in the shoot­ing when two men opened fire July 8 in­side a home. The vic­tims were there to learn the gen­der of the sup­pos­edly ex­pec­tant mother’s child.

Po­lice haven’t iden­ti­fied the gun­men or their mo­tive.
